The Cordillera Property Owners Association (CPOA) is a private homeowners association with offices located inside the Cordillera Post Office building at 360 Carterville Rd. The CPOA is supported by annual assessments, manages and operates property owner amenities, provides recreational programing, architectural design review, social events and other homeowner services.
